How cool is this astronomy-themed groom's cake shot by Laurel McConnell?! According to the couple's wedding planner Holly-Kate Foss of Holly-Kate & Company, the bride secretly had the cake made as a surprise for her groom, an astronomy buff who loves debating the existence of a possible "new" planet nicknamed Tyche. Kaysie Lackey, owner of The People's Cake in Seattle, covered the two tiers in black fondant and dusted them with stars; she also hand-painted each planet and designed a custom rotating cake stand!
